Nicaraguan pastor jailed for burning woman to death in ‘exorcism’

An evangelical Nicaraguan pastor and four followers have been sentenced to 30 years for burning a woman to death in a so-called exorcism ritual.

Vilma Trujillo, 25, died in February after being tied up and thrown on a fire. The group had denied killing her and said she was possessed by the devil.

“The suffering that Trujillo was subjected to is something no human being should go through,” said judge Alfredo Silva.

Pastor Juan Rocha, 23, plus his siblings Tomasa and Pedro Rocha, and Franklin Jarquin and Esneyda Orozco, were convicted of murder.

All but Orozco also received six years for illegal detention, although the judge capped the jail time to 30 years, according to local media.
